On one of the most overlooked small streets – Sankt Peders Stræde – in the medieval part of Copenhagen, roams a wild dragon. But not just any dragon. It’s a Dessert Dragon and she placed her cake workshop right here. At least that’s the story that can be read from the name of this tiny cakeshop.
Literally translated it means The Dessert Dragon’s Cake Workshop. The workshop is a tiny shop with the majority of the space used for production. The customer service space is about 1×3 meters so if there is a line it extends into the street.
You can choose your cake from the window and many varieties are available. Ranging from international classics such as cheesecake, carrot cake, extremely rich brownies and cupcakes to Danish specialities like the Sarah Bernhardt, Linse – a vanilla custard tart and my personal favorite: The Raspberry Cut – A strange flat cake consisting of two pieces of thin cookie with raspberry jam in between topped with white glaze.
It’s impossible not to get carried away when visiting the dragon. Everything looks so delicious and I always end up buying way too many cakes. The dragon also produces custom-made larger cakes on request.
